Sydney’s new one-of-a-kind leisure and entertainment venue, The Star, was unveiled during a glittering ceremony on Thursday, September 15.
The $870-million transformation of Star City includes the reorientation of the building to embrace Sydney Harbour and the city skyline. Once fully complete, The Star will boast more than 20 restaurants, bars and cafes, a new luxury boutique hotel and 16-room spa, upscale retail collection, a 4000-capacity entertainment centre and world class gaming areas.
Created by internationally acclaimed events producer David Grant, the ceremonial opening featured a dazzling light and visual arts display, centred on The Star’s new glass façade harbourside entrance. The new harbourside frontage is made up of 147 flags of clear glass which formed a giant screen on which a spectacular visual display unfolded.
